Question: When are the Mets going to start paying me NOT to go to road games? And as awful as this game was, it was a typical road game for me. I was at the 9/19/84 game in Philly when the Mets lost 13-5, the 6/11//85 game when the Phills led 16-0 after 2 and beat the Mets 26-7. And I was at the Montreal series 6/10-12/88 when after losing the first two, the Mets led 3-0 in the 9th when Davey Johnson took out Sid Fernandez who was pitching a 1-hitter. Of course, they lost 4-3. This loss to Pittsburgh typifies my 1-11 road record-and I got to see them lose the 2nd game of the series too. Oddly, my only win came in 1998 in Boston when the Mets beat Wakefield-but got only two hits.

The Mets suck! They need to trade Smith and get somebody like Jones.
This comment is off-topic and will be removed. It has nothing to do with any specific game. But here's an acceptable alternative:

Example Two
The Mets suck! Smith made three errors in this game, and hit into a double play, and the Mets blew a 5-0 lead. They need to get rid of Smith and get somebody like Jones.
See the difference? Here you're getting the same point across, but it's in the proper context. We wouldn't consider this message to be off-topic, and we would let it remain.

We do appreciate anybody who takes the time to share their thoughts on our site, and we hate to remove anybody's postings. But if we didn't take steps to ensure that only on-topic messages were retained, The Ultimate Mets Database would become a confusing jumble of unrelated comments, and would thus be less enjoyable to visitors like you.

Thank you!
